Solidworks CAM Lathe:


I'm trying to use a boring bar to enlarge the diameter of a blind hole, however the operation insists on continuing in the X direction at the bottom of the hole toward the part center line (flat bottom hole initially drilled with a custom drill to create the flat bottom), and as the boring bar has a diameter larger than half of the hole its creating it collides with the back side of the hole.


Is there a way to have the ID feature only select the portion of the hole feature in the Z direction? (every video or example I can find online has a through hole and not a blind one).
